Day 3: Dunkeswell to Avonmouth
Starting from where we laid our head at the end of day 2, Dunkeswell, we’ll continue our route over Blackdown Hills then pass around the outskirts of Taunton via the racecourse. From there we head towards Creech St Michael and join the canal towpath for 20 odd miles of flat cycling paying Glastonbury and Wells a visit before we arrive at Cheddar Gauge and the beginning of the Mendips.
Hopefully the weather is on our side as Cheddar will be a great spot for some rest and recoup and take in the scenery while having lunch.
After refuelling, we’ll be back to climbing over the Mendips before coming down the other side into Bristol taking in views of the Clifton Suspension bridge before crossing over it. We’ll then follow the River Avon until we arrive at our destination for the night, Avonmouth.
